The Booking Information below provides an overview of the booking process and other important things to know about your stay with us.
When you confirm your booking it is the full terms and conditions that shall form the legal contract between us and in case of any discrepancy between this booking information and the full terms and conditions, the full terms and conditions shall be the authoritative source.
We accept bookings through our web site (and other internet booking services), by telephone and by post. Bookings can only be accepted from someone aged 18 or over. A booking will be provisional until a deposit has been received by us from you and your reservation has been confirmed to you in writing by us, stating the dates of your stay and the agreed tariff.
To confirm a booking we require payment of a deposit equal to 10% of the charges due for the whole stay or the value of the first night’s stay at the agreed tariff, whichever is the greater; or in the case of a Company having an approved credit account with us by providing a properly authorised and dated order with order number. Deposits are non-refundable.
Provisional (unconfirmed) bookings will be maintained in our reservations diary for as long as reasonably possible, however will be cancelled in the event that demand for rooms makes this impractical.
We welcome well-behaved, appropriately supervised children of all ages.
We accept group bookings and can accept for accounts to be settled by the guests in individual rooms or by the Group Leader making the booking.
We regret that we do not accept Pets (other than Guide/Hearing dogs) and we do not accept Stag or Hen parties.
Tariffs and Pricing
We display tariffs on our web site and other publicity materials in a variety of forms and will normally make clear the basis of the tariff, for example if it is on a per person or per room basis (and any age/occupancy qualifications as applicable). If not explicitly qualified to the contrary, quoted tariffs shall be on the basis of per room per night on the basis of a stated occupancy and include breakfast and VAT. Supplements may be chargeable where additional guests are accommodated above the stated occupancy. The tariff payable for accommodation will be the one agreed and shown in the booking confirmation (unless subsequently agreed and amended between you and us in writing).
Daily Housekeeping is included within the room rate and bed linen changes are either every two days or every three days depending on duration of stay unless requested otherwise.
Tariffs for Babies, Toddlers and Children
Unless specified explicitly to the contrary, for example in a promotional tariff, babies and toddlers aged 2 or below shall be accommodated free in a travel cot; the tariff for children aged 3-15 inclusive (or a younger child occupying a bed rather than a travel cot) shall be 50% of the adult tariff; children aged 16 and 17 shall pay the full adult tariff; where a baby/toddler is accommodated free it is expected the parents/guardian shall supply the baby/toddler’s food, otherwise a baby/toddler breakfast supplement shall be charged at the prevailing published rate.
